SOLAR-ERA.NET – a network that brings together more than 20 national and regional RTD and innovation programmes in the field of solar electricity technologies in the European Research Area (ERA) – has been working together for more than a decade, providing funding to highly innovative transnational RDTI projects involving some 500 organisations, and further improving transnational cooperation both in the solar power sector and between national funding agencies [1]. Eight Joint Calls have been launched promoting priority topics identified by the European Technology and Innovation Platform Photovoltaics (ETIP-PV). Similar to other relevant energy ERA-Net’s, the SOLAR-ERA.NET network is about to be integrated into a thematically much larger and energy system-oriented network called Clean Energy Transition Partnership (CETPartnership) that can seamlessly build on the momentum the ERA-Net’s have created over the last 15 years. CETPartnership is a new transnational initiative on joint research, technological development and innovation (RTDI) programming to boost and accelerate the energy transition in Europe, building upon regional and national RTDI funding programmes. CETPartnership enables some 50 national and regional RTDI programmes from 30 countries to align their priorities, pool national budgets, as well as to implement annual joint calls each with an average budget of some 100 million euros from 2022 to 2027. The first joint call is launched in September 2022 and is based on the CETPartnership Strategic Research and Innovation Agenda (SRIA) [2] with respect to the topics and challenges addressed in this joint call. Via the European Technology and Innovation Platform Photovoltaics and its Strategic Research and Innovation Agenda” (SRIA) for Photovoltaics [3]. This contribution shall present i) key figures and findings from the long cooperation of national programmes in SOLARERA.NET and ii) the new CETPartnership and opportunities for the PV industry and research community CETPartnership offers as a network and in the upcoming joint calls.
